Customer Comments

Highly satisfied with the service and products. I'm a custom knife maker and yes I could buy stabilized wood from several suppliers. However, I like to learn and use new products and I really like the Cactus Juice. Used it for the first time today and happy as heck. Sorry, but I had to go with another site for a vacuum chamber. I needed at least 9 inches in diameter and about 9 inches deep. Cooking my second batch now, the Juice is the way to go.

Back for more "Juice" What can I say, I found this stuff years ago and haven't found anything close to it\s performance. It works. If you intend to use this stuff often. Buy a minimum of 1 gallon. A Gallon does an awful lot of pen blanks and knife scales. You will find other use's too. That Gallon won't be around long. As for Curtis, the guy is class. Period. Shipping is fast, always. Got a question, he knows the answer! If he doesn't know the answer, you don't need to know it either!

I haven't had a chance to use my Cactus Juice yet but if it's half as good as Curtis' communication and support, I won't be disappointed.

I have been very happy with the service from TurnTex Woodworks. The timing of the shipping and the customer service is fantastic. I generally receive a notification the day of purchase that the product is has been shipped. I also find that the product I purchased is always ready to be used and is a very good product. I use the Cactus Juice and add dyes to stabilize wood for knife handles and pens. This product is fantastic and top notch.

I have used TurnTex exclusively for my wood stabilization needs. The products are great, and the service is outstanding! Curtis, the owner, is never to busy to answer questions or help when the need arises. I am confident that if you ask any wood turner where to go for wood stabilization, Curtis/TurnTex will be at the top of their list!\r\n\r\nMark\r\

Curtis, this is my 2nd order for the Cactus Juice. This order arrived with my mail, late in the evening. I did what every wood butcher would do, started vacuuming a bowl blank. Once again it worked beautifully. Tonight I just finished cooking a piece of drift wood that looks like a bird and has become so punky that I would not let anyone touch it, it came out as if it were petrified. Thank you for the great product and the fast shipping. I'll order again. Stan

This is a great product. I have ordered twice now, and shipping was quick. I just used it to stabilize a 3x6x6 spalted maple bowl blank that was very punky. The product worked perfectly, so I was able to turn a beautiful bowl. It would have disintegrated on the lathe otherwise. I will use this product for all of my stabilization needs. Good show.

When you purchase a TurnTex stabilizing system you're not just getting the best system on the market but the best customer service before, during and after the sale. Having the right equipment is only part of the process. The right information can be the difference between success and failure. Curtis is always just a phone call away, ready to answer your questions and guide you through the process. It's well worth the wait to go with a TurnTex system!

After building my own vacuum chamber with some pointers from Curtis, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered some cactus juice. Still have not had the time to try it out, but I can say the ordering and shipping process were quite pleasant. Product arrived in short order as promised.\r\nOne suggestion: It would be nice if we could get the activator in 2 or more smaller bottles so that we can activate smaller amounts of juice to make it last longer.\r\nOverall, I am quite happy with the product and service.

Cactus Juice seems to exactly as claimed. I bought a setup to stabilize wood because I had some buckeye burl pen blanks that were to nice to sit in the shelf any longer. After a few hours in CJ and then the toaster oven the blanks are solid and hard and turned like a dream! \r\n\r\nThanks Curtis!

Hi folks, I am a woodturner who uses a lot of punky, spalted maple. After finding out about Curtis and his amazing CACTUS JUICE, it sounded like just the thing I needed to make my turnings much more easily turned and much more presentable. I bought the 6 inch vacuum chamber with all of the fittings and some JUICE to get started. Very easy and very pleased. Curtis shipped my package of goodies as soon as they were available and they arrived in perfect shape just as advertised. Now I am able to use much more of my stock of maple without it getting wasted or destroyed in the turning process. I spoke to Curtis on the phone and he was very accommodating and very knowledgeable. I look forward to doing business with him in the near future.

Dealing with TurnTex Woodworks has been "beyond" a positive experience. Not only was I able to reach out to Curtis during the evaluation phase of our purchase, but he provided a wealth of information that enabled our team to make what we feel is an educated decision. He never "bad mouth" competitive products, but provided solid data on the value-add features of his stabilization system. Curtis is incredibly intelligent and insightful. His technical knowledge on the entire stabilization process and underlying physics is rock solid. Our stabilization system just arrived a few days ago and we anxiously trying to find a day to start our first batch; our customers are just as anxious! Thanks again TurnTex Woodworking for helping our business become more successful. Reuben & Kevin Prichard Facebook Group: HeartWood Mods: The Grove

I have been using stabilizing resin for 11 yrs on my fossil products. I decided to try Cactus Juice about 5 months ago. I found it to be as good or better than all the resins that I have used in the past for this purpose. The advantages I found are lower prices, fast cooking time and better viscosity. Charles Turnage

I received my stabilization chamber and after one use I immediately saw a difference in my wood blanks. My pump was working more effectively and stabilization times were much Quicker. Thank you for such a great product. Garth hansen

Cactus Juice has worked well for me over the last couple years. I stabilize and dye maple, mango, black palm and buckeye burl and have not hade a problem with warping, swelling, shrinking or twisting. I trust this product for stabilizing handle wood for knives with the wood mentioned.

This is a great product, it gives the craftsmen the ability to keep an important part of their craft under their own control. I am able to experiment with different dyes and different woods. And after the blank is cured I am left with a quality piece of stabilized wood, without the large bill from the "professionals" or the long down time waiting on snail mail. I am a return customer, and will continue to be a return customer.

Wow, what can I say. I make custom razor and razor sets, and have been toying with the idea of stabilizing and dying woods. It is important that my woods are 100% water proof. I soon joined the wood stabilizing group on Facebook. This is an amazing site and Curtis of TurnTex is a legend. I ordered 2 gallons of Cactus Juice and got to work. Curtis was at my beckoning call with any questions. I do have to say I am more than satisfied with the result. His products are top notch and when following his instruction via Facebook and YouTube you cannot go wrong. Thank you Curtis, I am now a permanent customer.

I got a gallon of this for my first try at stabilizing. I had some issues to work out at first, but with the help of Curtis I was able to get through it. He was willing to talk me through every issue I had, no matter time of day or night. Very helpful top notch customer service.

I knew when I ordered the vacuum chamber that it would take a while. However it was worth the wait. I received the chamber and all the hookups ready to stabilize wood. First class craftsmanship and a easy to read but very thorough instruction manual. Thanks!!

Ordered Turntex new stabilizing chamber to stabilize some locally found spalted oak with great results. Chamber is a definite improvement over the previous chambers. Now I can let wood soak in cactus juice for days at a time without worrying about the chamber. I would recommend Turntex products to anyone that is interested in processing your own pen or knife blanks.
